Ebert was my favorite reviewer. I could usually tell if I’d like a movie from his reviews, even if my verdict would be different than his.

The great duo of Siskel and Ebert, together again. RIP @ebertchicago

As a family we watched Siskel & Ebert. It was so much fun. Only critics I fully trusted.

#Rip @ebertchicago Your reviews were wonderful, even moreso cuz u kept them unbiased. In fact,until twitter I was unaware of your politics.

I rarely saw a movie at the theater before reading Roger Ebert’s review. Sad he’s gone.
